Playwright: William Shakespeare
Director: Kip Williams
July 21 – September 27, 2014 @ Sydney Theatre
A dark prophecy triggers Shakespeare’s gory tragedy that charts the rise, rise and fall of a political couple whose wayward moral compass takes them in a deadly direction.
Fasten your seat belts for another towering performance from Hugo Weaving as he wrestles with one of Shakespeare’s most complex protagonists. A man whose opportunism o’er-shadows his humanity, whose ambition destroys its prize.
Continuing his keen-eyed interpretation of classic texts, director Kip Williams (Under Milk Wood, Romeo and Juliet) delivers a sharp reworking on a reinvented stage. In Alice Babidge’s extraordinary design, the vast Sydney Theatre will be turned inside out into a dark, intimate venue with a strictly limited capacity, promising a haunting new experience.
“I am in blood stepped in so far that should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go’er'”
‘What bloody man is that?’
